    This book very nicely describes the concept of Quality Assurance in Health. In the TQM context it is a difficult task to describe quality assurance in service sector such as health. This book is an effort to overcome the issue without touching the profit aspects. I recommend this book to all Public Health students doing health management course 5/5(1). The Italian National Health Service (Servizio Sanitario Nazionale) was set up in , with universal coverage, solidarity, human dignity, and health needs as its guiding principles.

    More generally, she is also interested in creating and evaluating systems for quality assurance and cost containment in anatomic pathology, and using new technologies to improve pathology education. During her training, Dr. Rooper authored numerous articles and book chapters. He has also served on public committees, including the Governors Committee on Cost Containment, Quality Assurance Committee (Gubernatorial appointment) and the Medical Assistance Advisory Council. Dr. Bellavia has current teaching appointments at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
